New(ish) Bedroom

Remember me saying that I only wanted pretty things in our house?  Well, the bedroom furniture we bought after we got married was starting to look pretty bad.  This picture is from 2005 – it’ gone down hill from there – I suppose the 6 moves in 8 years we’ve been married has not helped, but let’s be honest here, it is CHEAP furniture.  Like super cheap.  We were broke when we got married.  Went months with just an air mattress….until my friend prayed us into a bed.  (That’s another story!) dsc01522

So here we are in our pretty house with furniture that just doesn’t seem right.  Buying new furniture is not really an option.  So what’s a girl to do?  Buy some paint – that’s what! Then talk her darling husband and brother-in-law into painting the whole bedroom set. (For the record, the BIL did most of the painting.)

In total – we spent just under $30 to redo the furniture.  I also got a new “Bed in a Bag” on clearance – I’m not sure I love it, but my husband doesn’t hate it – so that is good.  And now we have a new bedroom that I can live with for a bit longer. 🙂

    Aren’t you so thankful that your friend prayed you into a bed?? 🙂 I love what you’ve done with the furniture! It look classy, and it’s even more beautiful because it’s cheap! 🙂

    I’m very thankful for that friend…. and for many reasons – not just the bed. 😉

    I think your bedroom in beautiful! I loved it the first time I saw the pictures – before I new it was “remade” 🙂 Love all of the other pictures of the house as well.
